The Style of the Book

In the book over 100 animals are matched with 14 habitats. Each habitat is explained in words and illustrations over a full double spread. This is followed by a double reference page naming some of the animals who live there and a good quirky fact about what they do to survive there. It is a fast paced gallop through our wonderful planet earth looking at how the animals fit into nature with just enough detail to give little ones a base of knowledge.

The clever illustrations and nonstop fascinating facts make this book both readable and perfect to reference and return to time and time again.  Do you know what a Tarsier is, where is lives or that is can leap up to 40 times its body length or that there is an animal called a Civet who helps make your coffee taste delicious?  Neither did I before reading this book; good to know it’s not just children who will be expanding their knowledge.
